This simply stunning carved 8-day movement traditional musical cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Hönes' in the Black Forest, Germany. 

Design

Standing at 92cm's tall, this traditional cuckoo clock is hand-carved by a master carver in the Black Forest, Germany. Made from wood sourced locally from the region, and with it's grand size, it beautifully combines several iconic elements of the famous Black Forest to craft a functional work of art that can be passed down for generations to come. 

Adored from top to bottom with intricate fir leavesthis large cuckoo clock combines a tall chalet with a uniquely carved facade. Below it's steep roof with deep carved shingles, a series of finely carved fir tree leaves falls on either side of the balcony containing hand-painted village dancers. On the left side of the wooden clock facewith it's wooden hands and Roman numerals, stands a majestic hand-carved ibex. It stands upon a grassy ledge in front of a fir tree and peers out across the clock. On the right side, a hunter man stands in front of another fir tree;  he surveys the scene, as if peering out over mountains. Below, on either side of the clock, two large fir leaves hang gently, a repeating pattern meets in the middle of the clock where we find a smaller fir tree rising from the base. Below this, three large solid wooden clock weights hang next to their brass chains. 

Above the clock face, on a balcony at the front of the clock, a carousel of small hand-painted village dancers rotate and twirl when the melody plays - either "Edelweiss" and "The Happy Wanderer".

Stained in an 'antique walnut' finish, this 8-day movement carved musical cuckoo clock is perfect for adding some rustic charm, and a touch of life and sound to any living room, hallway or study. 

Cuckoo Chime

This clock features a charming little cuckoo bird which animates from behind it's little door and sings in the hour (a succession of cuckoo calls to correspond to the hour in the day). The sound can be turned off manually at night with a 'sound-off' lever. 

Music

The cuckoo clock plays it's melodies through a mechanical Swiss-made music box that alternates between the songs "The Happy Wanderer" and "Edelweiss". The sound can be switched off at night with a manual lever. 

This clock features:

    • Moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind it's door and chimes with it’s cuckoo' sound on the hour. It sings a succession of cuckoo's equal to the hour of the day. 
    • Moving village dancers who animate by twirling and rotating through the two arched doorways when the melodies play.
    • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
    • Manual night-time sound shut-off lever.
    • 8-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually only every eight days).
    • A mechanical 'REGULA' movement which is made by the market-leader 'SBS-FEINTECHNIK' in the Black Forest/Germany.
    • Equipped with Swiss-made 'REUGE' music box which alternates between playing two different melodies upon the hour - 'The Happy Wanderer' and 'Edelweiss'.
    • Solid wooden 'pine-cone-shaped' weights. 

    8-day Movement

        This cuckoo clock has 8-day movement meaning approximately every eight days the clock needs to be manually wound although you are free to wind it at any time within this period. The act of winding the cuckoo clock is very easy and only requires someone to gently pull on the chains so that the weights are drawn back to their utmost position. Gravity does the rest and ensures the clock can be kept perfectly on time as the weight lowers and slowly pulls the chain back through the clock-work mechanism.
